Havas Reports 7.3 Percent Organic Growth, a Three-Year Best

France’s Havas Group reported €387 million ($548.1 million by today’s conversion rate) in revenue for Q3, up from €368 million for the same period in 2010.  Organic growth was 7.3 percent and net new business was €351 million (about $497.2 million). The FT noted a drop in France, which was impacted by issues in healthcare and events.
